THE GULP by Alan Baxter
(published by 13th Dragon)

The isolated Australian harbour town of Gulpepper is not like other places. Some maps don’t even show it. And only outsiders use the full name. Everyone who lives there calls it The Gulp. The place has a habit of swallowing people.

  • A truck driver thinks the stories about The Gulp are made up to scare him. Until he gets there.
  • Teenage siblings try to cover up the death of their mother, but their plans go drastically awry.
  • Under the blinking eye of the old lighthouse, a rock fisher makes the strangest catch of his life.

Five novellas by Alan Baxter. Five descents into darkness. Welcome to The Gulp, where nothing is as it seems.

UNSAFE WORDS by Loren Rhoads
(published by Automatism Press)

In the first full-length collection of her edgy, award-winning short stories, Loren Rhoads punctures the boundaries between horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction in a maelstrom of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll.

Ghosts, succubi, naiads, vampires, the Wild Hunt, and the worst predator in the woods stalk these pages, alongside human monsters who follow their cravings past sanity or sense.

The stories are drawn from the pages of the magazines Cemetery Dance, City Slab, Instant City, and Space & Time, the Wily Writers podcast, and the books Sins of the Sirens, Demon Lovers, The Haunted Mansion Project: Year Two, Tales for the Camp Fire, and more.

(The Path of Ra, book 3, published by Raw Dog Screaming Press)

There’s been a gang massacre on Auckland’s Freyberg Wharf. Body parts everywhere. And with the police’s go-to laboratory out of action, it’s up to scientific consult Pandora (Penny) Yee to sort through the mess.

It’s a hellish task, made worse by the earthquake swarms, the insufferable heat, and Cerberus’ infernal barking. And what’s got into her brother Matiu? Does it have something to do with the ship’s consignment? Or is Matiu running with the gangs again? Because if he’s involved, Penny will murder him herself…

Join Penny and Matiu Yee for the family reunion to end all family reunions, as the struggle between light and dark erupts across Auckland’s volcanic skyline.

AFTERAGE by Yvonne Navarro
(published by Macabre Ink)

A plague of vampirism has crept across the country, reducing once-thriving cities to ghost towns.

In Chicago, a few scattered survivors hide behind the fortified walls of office buildings and museums, raiding deserted stores for dwindling supplies of clothing and food.

Meanwhile a hungry vampire population also struggles for survival as their prey grows scarce, forcing them to capture alive the last remaining humans as breeding stock for the blood farms that will ensure their future.

The horror stories in this collection take you deep into lives touched by darkness.

Herein, you’ll meet a grandmother with a knack for storytelling, a little girl caught in a lightning storm, and a medical intern who learns the true meaning of family–the hard way.

At times gory, very often moody and intense, these tales reveal a truth about our world: evil exists, and love persists.
